approved plan has engineering feasibility and is so designed as 
to minimize disruptions of the natural state of the park. Any 
right-of-way granted pursuant to this section shall be revocable 
upon breach of the conditions upon which it is granted, which 
conditions shall also be enforcible in any other appropriate 
manner, and the grantee shall be obligated to remove its improve-
